'A free pass for mobs to kill': India urged to stem cow vigilante violence

Wednesday 06:03 GMT

Hindu cow vigilante groups in India are escaping punishment for lynchings because of police inertia and complicity by local officials, leaving the family of those affected without justice, according to a new report by Human Rights Watch.

“Calls for cow protection may have started out as a way to attract Hindu votes, but it has transformed into a free pass for mobs to violently attack and kill minority group members,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, south Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

Zion Williamson urged to shut down and look toward NBA: 'College is bull----'

Today 18:10 GMT

NBA stars renewed calls for Duke basketball star Zion Williamson to forgo the rest of the season after he sprained his knee while he burst through his Nike shoe Wednesday night against North Carolina.

Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen said last month on ESPN’s “The Jump” that Williamson had done enough in college and that he was the best college prospect since Michael Jordan. “I think he's locked up the biggest shoe deal, I think he's definitely going to be the No. 1 pick, I think he's done enough for college basketball that it's more about him, personally,” Pippen said.
